This SoundBlock, featuring the vocal anomalies of monster keyboardist Jordan Rudess
(Dream Theater), is free to all registered users of Samplebase. It loads exclusively into our free Satellite synth-player.
Halfway through the 2009 NAMM show in Anaheim, Jordan noticed that his voice had changed as a result of straining to talk over the loud rumble of the show, producing a second tone that was exactly an octave higher than his normal voice. So, he decided to pull out his trusty iPhone and record the phenomenon in his hotel room. During the show, we happened to have the video camera running as he explained his revelation to us... so naturally, we asked him if we could snag his samples and try our hand at programming them for Satellite, to which he replied, "Why not?"

After the show, we took the samples back to our lab at Samplebase to see what our Satellite engine could do with them. Quite pleased with the results, we're now happy to offer these unique sounds in a complimentary SoundBlock called NODE
for our loyal users. Thanks so much to Jordan for sharing his experiment with us. Enjoy!
